The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) is pleased to welcome Danielle D. Leger as its new Director of Local Advocacy.
In her new position, Leger will be
charged with supporting LRA member issues in municipal areas with local
governing bodies, as well as aiding in government affairs efforts.
Leger was most recently a
researcher-analyst with the Louisiana Senate’s Revenue and Fiscal Affairs
Committee, serving as committee counsel to legislators, public officials and
constituents, as well as drafting fiscal legislation. She was also previously
employed as a committee secretary for the Senate Judiciary B Committee.
“Danielle has a wealth of knowledge
of government processes that will most certainly assist and strengthen the
LRA’s advocacy efforts,” said LRA President & CEO Stan Harris. “We are very
pleased to have her join the LRA team.”
A native of Houma, Leger has a
Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication degree from Louisiana State University.
"Louisiana’s restaurant industry is
one of the most important and identifiable industries in the nation,” said
Leger. “It is an honor and privilege to work with the LRA to advocate for such
a vital economic engine. I see the industry’s future potential and I look
forward to helping it grow.”
